FLORESVILLE -- Despite growing opposition and the absence of a report on a May 7 public hearing about the proposal, the Floresville City Council May 10 voted 3-2 in favor of publishing its intent to issue certificates of obligation aimed at funding an outdoor sports complex.

The verbiage of the agenda item, however, makes no mention of the amount of the funds or their planned utilization. Rather, it reads that the council authorized and approved “publication of notice of intention to issue certificates of obligation; complying with the requirements contained in the Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 15C2-12; and providing an effective date.”

Following the council’s action, citizens have launched a petition to halt the issuance of the debt, in accordance with Section 271.049 of the Texas Local Government Code. If at least 5 percent of the city’s registered voters sign the petition, the certificates cannot be issued unless approved in an election.

We need to continue to stand against their non sense and lies. I do not think the mayor is really paying attention to what he is doing and saying. I agree, there are some deep pockets that he must be in to rush this sports deal ... More ›

Deci - I have been wondering for a while - WHY the mayor is so hell bent on rushing through this Sports project. It has no plan. It has no money. The city has shown no interest in the condition of the ball fields in the past. ... ... More ›

I think it is time for the Mayor, Councilmen Flores, Gomez and Castillo; to take a good long look at yourselves. Your votes were cast against the will of the citizens of Floresville. How many of you have children that will play ... More ›

Great idea Deci. That one fits him well since the only thing coming out of his mouth is Bull quacha. I have said it all along he wants something with his name on it. He doesn't deserve squat the way he has treated the folks ... More ›

After attending several Council meetings I could not figure out exactly what the Mayor's agenda was until it dawned on me that he very probably wanted something with his name on it for his years of service and I agree that something ... More ›
